She will take no advice and listen to no couns'l; she spurns the remonstrsnces of those slavetoldiiig States which really suffer from Noithern aggressions; sbe will not sllow them to consult as to the mesns of their own safety; sbe will admit of neither compromise nor delay; but avowing her long cherished desire to destroy the Federal Union, abe declares ber purpose to comptl ber sister States of the South whom sbe cannot persuade, to follow ber example. Sbe undertakes to release ber cltlxens from their allegiances to the I'nited States, and abeolves ber own public officers and judges, and the officers and judges of tbe United States within ber bor ders from their oaths to support tbe Constitution. Sbe taunts and defies tbe Government; sbe avows ber purpose to destroy; sets guard aroond its ar aeatl to prevent tbe removal of tbe arms and mu nitions which belong to It; declares ber latentlon to possess herself of the public forts snd ber pur p ise to take tbum by violence should a msn be sent to reiuforce their feeble garrison. Sbe is collecting ar.n* from every quarter, organising military bauds th cughout ber territory, and ex citing her young men to brave the penalties of trea-on.

Is It true that our Executive, though it bad months of warning, has taken no atep to put the fort* in a state (f defense ? la it true that it has been deterred from reinforcing tbem by threats of conspirators? Is it true thai cnnnon are now being mounted in one of them at the expense of the Inited Slates which contalni not a toldier to use or defend tbem ? Is It tru< that there is an understanding between the Kx ecutive and the conspirators that the former tbal not reinforce the forts. ai.d in consideration thereo that the latUr will not attar k them while th< present Administration remains In power? Ha the commander of the handful of men occupying one of those forts, after being denied reinforce ments. been Instructed to surrender if. attacked ir these things be #o, tbe wealth of world* can not outweigh the awful responsibility our Presl dent baa lucurred.. li they are not so, be own i to bimself and bis country to make tbe trutl known. A Strang** spectacle our country presents to th< world. Within a period of seventy years unde our incomparable Constitution, our Ststes bav Increase! from thirteen to thirty-three, our popu lation from three millions to thirty, our couiitr has expanded from the Miss saippl river to tb Pacific ocean, and our wealth has accumulate*: with a rapidity heretofore fabulous. In the ful enjoyment of peace and plenty, of every comfor and luxury which the heart of man could desire we are suddenly alarmed by the cry of rebellloi and revolution coming from a little State enjoyinj a higher degree of security and prosperity thai almost any of her sisters. The alarm spreads ove tbe whole extent of our broad country; credit 1 destroyed; tLe banks stop payment; trade Is para lyztd; industry Is prostrated; want and destltutio surround us, anarchy is marching in upon us, am the Government which should save us, teem paralyzed as by the wand of an enchanter. All this is chargeable to the madness of a f? v politicians, who have already destroyed inor property tban all the lands and negroes of Sout Carolina are worth, and she is herself one of th greatest sufferers. Shall this little State be permitted to completi by the utter destruction of onr Government, th ruin she has so sucrrssfully begun? The hopelet disruption of this Union would be the lentil of th black man's tlarery and the white man'i hburtj It would be tfie tocsin of a war which, howevi delayed in its < ommencement'and from time t time Intermitted in its progress, will cease onl wun we extinction 01 negro slavery In tbe Sputt while by its plunderlnga and taxes to suppoi armies and navies and minister to the cup dil and luxuries of military chieftains, It would ri duce the white laboring man.

Four years ago. alarmed at the current of pol: ical events, North and South, 1 took the liberty addressing a letter, of which a copy It annexe to the President of the United States * It Is obi oua tuat if the disuniontsts had then succeeded 1 their arts in causing the election of Fremont, 1 ir#nM nnw nt?1 no ?? *u? 1 been enacted.

Thay then Indue h*ui by threats of opposition to place tbe wbc power of his administration at their disposltic and they uaed it to distract aad destroy tbe Den cratlc party which they considered tbe chief bt rlrr to their designs. If, instead of surrenders himself into tbe hands of tbe conspirators igali the Union, Mr Buchanan bad cut looae from th< and repelled tbe no leas dangerous fanatics of t North, throwing himself upou tbe true lovers the I nlon in the North aad the South, tbe Ki and tbe West, the perils which now surround might have been averted. That which mlg have been a preventitive, uiust, if our country to be saved, now be tbe remedy.

Thk Stats or Things iw Viboisia ?Below we publish a letter received yesterday from a dis tinguished public man of Virginia, who haa de voted himself for a considerable time to the task of sndravorlng to stem the current of the popular Inclination cl bis State to participate in tbesecefr aion action of the cotton States. He baa labored to that end aa earnestly asourself, and reluctantly conies to the conclusions embraced in Lla letter, wbicb we have to say are our own. It is time that the North should comprehend precisely what the secession movement meana in all its length and breadth, and that the only possible way of averting such action on tbe part of every slave holding State ia to bring the subject as fully and aqnarely before the people of the non-slaveholding States, acting in their sovereign capat Ity, as it ta now being brought before the people of the South ern States : KOSKLAND, V a , LltC BD, Editor of the Star : The secession sentiment, I lament to say, 1? fearfully on tbe increase In Vir ginia A few month* since she was eminently conservative. as she Las bten from the foundation of the Uovernmeat. H>it the is fast loosing from her conservative moorings. Tbe tardiness and evident reluctance of the northern repr?s?n'attvt-s in Congress to make concession; tbe constant talk of coercion by the Federal power; the scoff* at southern sincerity and southern courage and character, emanating all the while from tbe press and the public men of tbe North; and, above ail, tbe late Insulting ultimatum of tbe North, of 110 concession bevond a covenant not to abolish sla very in the states in which it now exists, have aroused the worst fears of our people of all parties, ar.d are rapidly sweeping them to the vortex of disunion. One thing t can say to >011, without risk of mistake, that theiirstact of coercion settles the question us to Virglnta, forever ?bedoes not sympathize with the rash and precipitate actio* of south Carolina; regards 11 ill advised, and un kind and unjust to Ler exposed sisters on the bor der: but tbe moment a Federal gun la flred upon the people of a seceding State, an armyrf lier citi zen* will rush to the rescue of tbe invaded State, and tbe State will become as one man for dis union, horrible as sbe regards tbe recourse. Nay. more: tbere are thousands of chafed and gallant spirits waiting only for tbe signal gun, and hoping even to hear Its report, believing in their con sciences that the Month has already borne more tban she ought, and that there is no hope for re dress in the Union. I shudder to think that this great country of ours should be thus standing on tbe brink of a yawning precipice. Hut tbe truth Is so, and wc had better face it In all its sad reali ties Will not our brethren of the North pause, and reflect, and nve? Sure as God rules on hlgb, tbere must be concession, and a settlement before this crisis passes Tbe South Is In earnest. In awful earnest l?et those who control our desti nies in this time of great trouble, tike heed' J.
